Discover Isle of Wight
One of the United Kingdom's best treasures
is the Isle of Wight, on its south coast.
This small island is like Britain but has a
lot of Victorian history behind it. Osborne
House was one of Queen Victoria's favourite
summer houses and as a result, many other
Victorian aristocrats and celebrities went
to Isle of Wight as a very fashionable place
to go for a summer holiday. What could have
attracted them were the dramatic yet
beautiful cliffs and coastlines to the west
of the island and the clear waters of the
Isle of Wight beaches that are perfect for a
quintessentially British summer family

Things to See
For animal lovers, you will be able to
see many species of rare bat, red
squirrels and dormice that are found
nowhere else in the world but on this
island. There are also so many other
things to see on this fantastic island.
Osborne House is one of the main
attractions on the Isle of Wight but for
more family-orientated activities why
not go to Alum Bay and enjoy the
beautiful scenery and multi-coloured
Another activity that is bound to entice
the kids is Blackgang Chine, a former
gorge that you could walk through to get
to the sea but has now been turned into
a fantastic amusement park that caters

Probably the two most famous features
about the Isle of Wight are `the
Needles' and the island's beaches. `The
Needles' are amazing snow-white rock
formations that come out of the sea like
giant spikes, hence the nickname `the
Needles'. The attractive, golden sand of
the Isle of Wight's beaches combined
with the hot, summer weather make the
Isle of Wight the perfect short holiday
